Do people do this to you?

Your driving at a good speed and they will pull out in front of you...

The main ones who target me are dodges and chevys (GMC)...
Once in awhile a small car.
They like to pull out and make me come to a stop before they cross over the lane... Ballsy in my opinion... If I didnt like my truck so much it would be fun to hit them. Just to watch the expression on their faces as they see the Ford emblem smack them in the forehead...

Or they like to ride my bumper... Young guys in the Chevys seem to prefer this style of messing with me.

My pickup is just a normall 7.3 F250, it does have a 4" lift, straight pipe for exhaust... nice and loud but that is it. It has scratches, rust and needs work.

Maybe it is because Im a chick, Im not a gay chick - just some broad who has a pick up. Maybe my driving sucks? Im agressive.. I admit this.

Maybe it is the small town B.S.? Not real sure but it seems to happen quite often...

Done venting

hmmm i live in small town mostly auto workers and farmers. Never seem to notice anything specific except just idiots who dont know how to drive. I dont think they do it on purpose i just think they never want to wait for ya and figure they would rather pull out in front of you, make you stop while they accelerate like they have all the time in the world. Dont matter if im in my mustang f150 f250 or crotch rocket. Seems alot of them have no perception of distance or just want to pull out.

i know here in FL it happens all the time, all the grey hairs can't seem to understand that my 8,000 lb truck cant and refuses to stop on a dime. i'm sure i have nade a few prunes wet their depends. I've had some really close calls, one i stopped so close to an old ladies car that i thought i'd hit her. my front license plate bracket was so close to her drivers door i couldn't have put my hand between my truck and her car.

It happens all the time here on the MS. Gulf Coast. A lot of people here drive cruddy cars with no insurance so they're not out when you hit them. Its almost as if they sit and wait for ya.

I had a weight dist. hitch on my old IDI back home in NC that completely trashed the front end of a lowered blazer when he rear ended me. folded his radiator, hit the top front of the engine, broke his engine and tranny loose, and crunched the front of it to the ground so hard it popped his front tires. I loved it!

Random stupidness aside, people generally tend to give my big truck a bit of extra space. I've noticed they get more aggressive when I'm in a smaller car.
